  • Flat and easy to use, not dome-shaped cap. This Shiitake mushroom is called “Koshin” and is picked after the cap of the Mushroom blooms into an umbrella. It is larger (42-75mm) and flatter than the “Donko.” Since Koshin is less thick than the Donko, it is easier and quicker to use, requiring less time to rehydrate. Koshin is best used cut and in stir-fries, soups, sauces, where smaller pieces are used with other ingredients.

Product description

Our Forest-Grown dried Shiitake mushroom is cultivated locally by 600+ traceability managed growers. The growers use a 1,000-year-old Japanese approach to grow sustainable Sweet Sap Oak (sawtooth oak) Tree logs that are recognized in Japan as producing the best-tasting and textured Shiitake.
Japanese famous chef, Dr. Yukio Hattori, chose our Shiitake for his traditional Japanese New Year foods "Osechi." He is known as an expert commentator on the Japanese television show "Iron Chef." And his cooking school recommends our Shiitake and allow us to use his face on our products.

Our Shiitake is perhaps the only Kosher certified Shiitake that are 100% Forest-Grown. The forest undergoes a 15-years life cycle. In the spring, seedlings will grow from sawtooth oak stumps. Thus, the oak trees on the mountain will regrow after a period of time. Very Sustainable. We use a far-infrared drying approach, which minimizes moisture to less than 9% (others are 12%+) to preserve a premium taste and quality. Our Shiitake has the most natural Vitamin D, 9680 IU/100g, by UVB exposure.

Forest-grown Shiitake contains large amounts of Guanylate, which enhances the Umami of Glutamate a much more intense Umami taste. The most abundant amino acids in the natural world are Glutamate. And Umami, produced by Glutamate, has a characteristic of becoming seven to eight times stronger through Guanylate of Shiitake. The drying process breaks the Shiitake's cell membrane, and the rehydrating produces Guanylate. Shiitake is the natural Umami booster for home cooking.

Tips for Rehydration
For the most delicious Shiitake, please soak in cold water for 24 hours in the fridge. To reduce soaking time, take out the Shiitake one hour after you started soaking the Shiitake, chop into small pieces, and soak for another hour and then use it as needed.

Store dried Shiitake mushroom at room temperature, away from heat and moisture.
